The Society of American Military Engineers is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.

Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.

The Greater Kansas City Post accomplishes this goal locally by supporting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and quarterly newsletter. We are supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Greater Kansas City Post membership.

Event Description:
The GKC SAME Post is teaming with MO SAVE to offer a training workshop on March 9, 2018.

The Missouri Structural Assessment and Visual Evaluation (SAVE) Coalition is a group of volunteer engineers, architects, building inspectors and other professionals that assists the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) with building damage inspections. After a disaster, SAVE volunteers are trained to move quickly to determine which buildings are safe to use.

SAVE Coalition volunteers are called to assist when a disaster such as a tornado or earthquake causes so much structural damage that local officials need help determining the safety of buildings. SAVE inspectors are trained in rapid visual evaluations to get people back in their homes and businesses as soon as possible.

If you’re an architect, professional engineer, building inspector or skilled construction industry worker with at least five years of verifiable general building design, construction or inspection experience, you’re eligible to join the SAVE Coalition. All that’s required is completion of a training course to become a certified team member, with recertification every three years.

The one-day course provides training and procedures for rapid building evaluations in the aftermath of a disaster. The Midwest is at risk for tornadoes and earthquakes, so the training focuses on quick inspections to determine whether homes and other structures can be used after these disasters.
